Assets are at the heart of the NormShield. There are types of assets; URL, IP, Hostname and Other. Most of the web applications are defined as URLs that contain protocols, domain names and path contexts to applications, e.g. https://example.com/portal/login. However, there are also IP addresses which serve for non-http services, such as SSH, FTP or even RDP. Hostnames and others are mostly used for NormShield On-Premises version.
